Unlike many posters here, I refuse to dance on the graves of people that are losing their jobs. Most of you have no idea who many of these people really are. Some could be Conservative Christians with small children or a sick parent. Yet the venom is in full force.

Moreover, these were people who worked - something we have a shortage of in this country.

Shame is an appropriate word to use here.

While you did not direct that specifically at me, I plead guilty. I was wrong and you’re right.

Personally, I have difficulty in holding my powder when it comes to those I believe hate me and want to disrupt my life. That is not meant to be an excuse.... it just is - what it is.

2,000 job losses from Boeing will cost thousands more jobs in Snow and King county....actually, all over the area.

Anyway, you are right.

SkyPilot, like your handle, can't agree with your sentiments. A kid has bad parents, he has no choce, you can feel sorry for him. He grows up, and suppose he joins a union to get a job, that is a choice. He loses his job because of his union, too bad, you can feel sorry for him but our old friend schadenfreude kicks in, what did you expect. Poor life choices is the progenitor of bad luck.

So no one is dancing on the grave of someone who lost their job, no, they are recognizing that actions have consequences. No shame is due them. Think these positions through and check for self-righteousness.
